jean edward smith, "eisenhower in war and peace" and the next call comes from mike in los angeles. hi i. >> caller: my question is for david. your father was an amazing president, one of the greatest presidents ever to actually serve over our country. but it seems that the republican party has fallen short in recent years. i need looking at the last republican president and his eight year demonstration, looking at where the republican convention is a prime example of the problems that the republican party is having and the current events happening today. inside the republican party you have the tea party movement which is part me for saying, a joke in itself but where how do you think your rant but it would have viewed the republican party and what would his advice be to republican leaders today? >> both isenhour's on the evolution of the gop and also mr. smith who has interesting views on this. my view of it is to pose that question and the very interesting what what-if, to pose that question is like asking how franken roosevelt would have you the democratic party in the jimmy carter e
primaries. he enters the democrat race like a week before the convention convenes in los angeles. you know, he almost pulls back. he almost pulls it off. jack kennedy is not nominated until, what is the? until they call the roll on wyoming. >> now, there is no state that begins with z. those two primaries, jack kennedy's father doesn't want him to enter wisconsin, he thinks it is dangerous. but that is a good pick for him because it is the most heavily catholic state in the midwest. he has a leg up there. hubert humphrey has a leg up because he comes from next door in minnesota. he does a little better at the polls when they get it wrong. they get it wrong. and humphrey exceeds expectations in the delegates. he goes on to west virginia and the polls, which have been up for jack kennedy before wisconsin, i guess before the folks there realized that he was a catholic, they take a downturn. kennedy then really perfects -- perfects his style going for the people. and i think that the poverty of the people in west virginia, kind of changes them because it is just terrible and awful they are. an
been every fat are in the u.s. created today's diverse ecology, where there's los angeles but also in wichita and new york and also in the dallas-fort worth area. in the u.s. with simultaneous emergence of lots of entrepreneurs in the early 20th century, the right brothers and everyone who followed the period we had a multiplicity of funding sources. the army air force has a purchaser for the right brothers, but the postal service did the most effect to industrial planning or industrial policy in the u.s. by having airmail pilots and saying this is the market for airplanes. we have individual barnstormers come air force all over the place. so we had a very, very rich structure. in china this has been military from day one. and so airspace was controlled and military secret. it's amazing to put a big chinese cities. they are extremely noisy, but not noisy from overhead. not helicopters despite mr. hsu's airliners because airports are usually far away. so what is the effort almost like the russian soviet economy of going from a military run system trying to willett into the civilian
, remember the day we arrived at at the southern pacific station here in los angeles? and papa and mama kissed the ground flax look, the american film institute has given me its life achievement award. and for that i am thinking them and all my friends who have come here. but for america, just for living here, i kissed the ground. thank you very much. [applause] >> now lets face it, if you are liberal you probably did not get a chill like we did over frank capra's immortal words in that speech. let's face it i don't think we are in any danger witnessing a typical liberal offering to kiss the ground of the united states of america any time soon. and finally, e pluribus unum, from the one many. the great seal got everything the liberals despise right up there front and center. in the first place you have your eagle holding euros. what good can those arrows serve besides celebrating the bloodlust of liberals the get america? it doesn't matter to them in the root eagles right talent he's clutching the olive branch of peace they can appoint the teddy roosevelt made 150 years later with the w
not to sue u.s. military leave iraq. that appeared on the op-ed page of the "los angeles times" and then began wandering the media world. one of its stops, curiously enough was the military newspaper, stars and stripes. this e-mail respons read your article in stars and stripes. when was the last time you visited iraq? a critique and 15 well-chosen world. his point, i was then a 65-year-old guy who had never been anywhere near iraq and undoubtably never would have. possibly more than once and disagreed with my assessment. this is not to be taken lightly. what, after all, do i know about iraq? only the reporting i've been able to read. the analysis found lots of experts, on the other hand, even from thousands of miles away, i was one of many who could see enough by early 2003 to go into the streets and demonstrate against an onrushing disaster that a lot of people theoretically are far more as a cakewalk or the new century. it is true that i have never strolled down a street in baghdad. and that is a deficit if you want to write about the american experience in iraq. it's also t
everything to my are a and roger. i was born in los angeles in the '60s and raised by parents who were very liberal. in fact, they had a very unusual romantic intermarriage. they were cautioned not marry, i had a jewish mother and my father was a surfer. and everyone thought at time it was a big deal. now it seems not anything to write home about. we were expose to the social issues in the '60s an my father in particular gave me a reading list when i was as young as nine which including black power literature, "to kill a mockingbird" and alice walker. he didn't know she was in that volume. and we went on many peace marchs and then when we moved to the east coast, i went a quaker school, carolina friends which was progressive but had a women study's curriculum. i was able to start taking women's history in a formal classroom setting but a school that encouraged learning at your own pace. when i was 12, and i was able to sort of pursue the subjects that interested me because i had been, you know, tested and pronounced gifted at an early age. a lot of teachers were very interested in mentoring
had in store for me? after i got out of the navy, i was a federal prosecutor in los angeles, u.s. attorney's office, prosecuted the standard cases, bank robberies, drug cases, doesn't really think about it much. ended up heading a unit prosecuting frauds against the government, fha, va, that sort of thing. after that was in the private practice of law, business litigation for five years and then was appointed to the bench, so i was on the bench for 25 years as a judge, and now i've retired and i'm running, as you say, for office. well, what court were you a judge at? >> guest: the superior court in orange county, california. it's the state court and over 25 years pretty much did everything. and as a part of that, you know, churning, low-level drug offenders through the system for no good purpose and eventually, in fact, it didn't take too long, i saw what we're doing simply isn't working. the tougher we get on drug crime, the softer we get with regard to prosecution of everything else. so robbers, rapers, byrderers were getting a lot less accountability because we're spending a
of cafta had to run what they call the cotler. it's highly one-to-one to the big market bay area and los angeles. we're only talking about legitimate people. not people but black marketeers going to the triple the price they can get in missouri and south government. this is people keeping it in state following state law. the law enforcement resources are still fighting the drug war on the gravy train now that it's sort of like, you've got 100,000 wildebeests crossing the river but only 20 the police are going to get eaten, but you don't want to be one of them. that's what it is like for a cannabis farmer trying to get medicine to patients in california. the moment early my research i was going to do a speaking event from a previous book, left mendocino county, i have a vegetable oil powered truck so some argued it was the effervescence given accounts. i don't know why they would've had the munchies, but the moment i crossed into sonoma county, underneath a bill road, anheuser-busch knows what america's number one cash crop is, they are saying you can use cannabis. this is what the budwei
nominati nomination, it was widely reported, including in "the new york times" and "the los angeles times," that he failed to pay more than $128,000 in taxes in the three years prior to his nomination. in mentioning secretaries geithner and is he we'll yus and mr. daschle -- geithner and sebelius and mr. daschle, i'm not suggesting anything beyond the reported facts of their circumstances or that their tax errors were intentional. i just wanted to remind the majority leader of these situations where it is not necessary to speculate on whether or not taxes were owed. while i appreciate the leader's newfound attention to the finance committee's vetting process, i want to assure everyone has a clear understanding of how this vetting process of the senate finance committee works. i'd be happy to discuss the committee's procedure with any interested colleague. i'm sure ranking member hatch and his staff would also be happy to discuss the process with anyone who is interested. i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quoru

motive and i think the jupiter missiles were sort of an excuse. >> host: we have victor in los angeles. good afternoon. >> caller: good morning in los angeles, actually. my question is about munich. there has always been a lot of talk that, you know, joseph kennedy pushed the munich agreement and what a disaster was. it certainly was a disaster. but i'm wondering if you could impact joseph kennedy's thought process in regards to his experience with the first world war and what a waste that was and how that inform his thinking in the munich agreement. >> guest: joseph kennedy was at that time the ambassador to great britain. he had a passionate belief that the united states should not get involved in any war in europe, except for under the most extreme circumstances. so when his close friend, the prime minister britain neville chamberlain went to munich in 1948 and made a deal with adolf hitler, that chamberlain hoped would forestall the war. that is actually a phrase he used. i talked to a close friend of joe kennedy when i was writing my book. in the late 1970s. and i asked him, why d

of my favorites. this is a "los angeles times" headline covering the welfare attack the first panel discussed repeated by rick santorum of the republican convention. this club got a lot of play in the blogosphere because people found a very refreshing that the times was running to recall what santorum to say that it was inaccurate so it doesn't say repeat welfare attack called inaccurate by fact checkers or controversial welfare claim. there is no punch pulling on their race, very direct. this is a person making a claim and it is inaccurate. this is the kind of coverage we don't often see but it's quite powerful and has the potential to make politicians think twice to have the conversation bill was talking about on the first panel to we want to go over this line. fact checking isn't magic. journalism can't completely reverse the incentives politician's face but on the margin it can be quite effective. next slide. what else constructively can the journalists to? this is an example that might be especially helpful to the reporters. you don't write your own head lines. uav don't have c
are los angeles and the marina district and some friends as though there is a whole kind of urban culture that's built up around neighborhoods where people who are alone go to be together they have partners for the rest of their lives but there are places where being alone can be a collective experience. >> host: you talk about the social problem. is this a social problem and people sort of start with the idea that this is a social problem, people disconnected, and argue that that's not necessarily the case. it seems -- i think it is interesting to think about how -- and you make this point, too that this living arrangement that people choose and constrained among a set of choice constraints so to some extent choosing to live alone and some extent it's choosing not to live in the arrangements that are otherwise available to people and i just wondered you see it being more one thing than the other? >> guest: i don't know how we can answer the question of more one thing than the other. the reality that we live in the world in which a lot of things we took for granted in the family are now u
